Medical and Consent Form 2018
We require a form for those booked to attend the Festival to make sure we can meet any specific needs, allocate accommodation and have contact details in the case of an emergency.
Our theme during the Festival this year is Circus and on the last night of each camp (Thursday and Sunday) we’re looking forward to seeing a lot of circus characters on the dance floor. Could you be a ringmaster, an acrobat, a lion tamer, a lion, something else? It’s a theme that we’ve often been asked to do but we know that some people aren’t keen on clowns so please don’t wear a clown mask or the clown face paint.
On another night the dress code will be Rainbow - with people wearing a multi-coloured beanie or other hat or something of each of the seven colours in honour of one of our former volunteers.
SHORT BREAKS FOR DISABLED CHILDREN - FREE PLACES
Due to funding from Essex County Council via Action for Children there is a limited number of funded places for children and young people with a disability aged 8 to 18 accompanied by a supporter to attend as a day visitor or to stay for the weekend. The participant should live within the Essex County Council administrative area (i.e. not Southend or Thurrock). If you'd like to be considered for a funded place, please contact us.
